The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Goedert coined a controversial play last season. Anytime the offense got into a 3rd and 1 or 4th and 1, every person on planet Earth knew what was coming. The “tush push” had an incredible success rate to the point that the league investigated banning the play in 2023. They did not so opposing defenses will have to deal with it again this year. Goedert admitted that teams were very vocal about how much they hated the play.
Philadelphia Eagles Dallas Goedert On Controversial Play
In an interview with Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take Goedert revealed what opponents would say to them when they lined up for the play.
“Oh, they hated it. Every time. They’d call us p******. They call us soft. Run a real play. Well, don’t get us to 3rd-and-1. Don’t get us to 4th-and-1.”
Basically, everyone outside of Eagles fans hates this play. Anytime a team has this type of success with a play teams will chirp about things being unfair. Ultimately, I’m in agreement with Goedert. Find a way to make sure you don’t get in those situations and you shouldn’t have a problem.
Will The Eagles Repeat 2022’s Success?
The play is still legal so the Eagles should continue to have success in short-yardage situations. The Eagles should continue their success from last year on the offensive side of the ball. Outside of the offensive coordinator, all the pieces are basically there. The defense is the real question mark as some veterans from last season have moved on to other teams and the team now relies on young talent. Ultimately, because of the weak NFC conference, the Eagles should have no issue getting back to the playoffs.
The Philadelphia Eagles Dallas Goedert is ready for 2023. They are looking to make it back to the Super Bowl and finish the job this time.
